Comment

I simply LOVE the new 2017 Evo Kites. After a few years of trying different brands and different styles of kites I've found my life long friend, if the quality were just better. After 2 weeks the canopy had started to tear on and around the protection patch due to packing the kites between sessions. The material used on the protection patch and the strut tips wear away at an unbelievably fast rate, and now at two months old my 9 meter looks as if it's 3 years old, and I can't see this kite lasting even 6 months. I purchased North with the quality reputation in mind but does not live up to it's reputation. I have not, in 2 months crashed this kite once but it is full of pin holes and material tearing apart. This to me is very unfortunate because this would be my lifelong kite with no hesitation otherwise, because they really have made an AMAZING kite to fly and jump big air with.


Bottom line

Comment

The Evo is like a good friend; gently and always there for you due to it's huge windrange. It is a very mellow kite which could for some people be the best North kite. For example the ones that like to do old school tricks with board-offs and dead mans. It can be a good choice for many kiters who are looking for something a bit more alive than a Rebel. Less suitable for freestyle though, although North does claims it to be a freeride/freestyle kite.
